I am raising money to provide my 4th grade students hygiene products. Most of my students live in poverty and have no way to acquire hygiene products. I would like to give them with hygiene bags to keep & use at school.
I teach the 4th grade in small town in WV. Most of my students are going through puberty with no one to talk to. Our nurse has hygiene talks with them every year, but she rarely has enough hygiene products to give them. Most of the students are raised by grand parents, parents who are addicted to drugs, and even some live with siblings not much older than them. Some of our students stories would break your heart. A lot of times our students smell, because they have no hygiene products at home and the last thing they want to do is listen to me teach them writing. These kids have bigger worries like where they will lay their head at night. If I could provide all 130 students with hygiene packets, that would be one less thing that they would have to worry about. If they know that they can come to school and get clean, this would make them feel much better about themselves.
